by Martin Gardner

Home / Puzzles in Education / Hands On Puzzles / Grade 7-8 /

You have 7 chess knights. Place one of them on any empty cell of a 3x3 board and then move it to another empty cell using knight's move (some examples of such moves are shown in the bottom diagrams, a and b).

Then in exactly the same way place and move another knight. Repeat your "place-move" steps till you have all 7 knights placed on the board.
